Lex’s gut fails him as the first Survivor Africa jury member is born.

Lex’s gut fails him as the first Survivor Africa jury member is born.
Hell-bent on “cut[ting] the head off of whoever it is that did this”–this being voting for him during last week’s tribal council–Lex went on a rampage so he could “take them out” and “slit their throat.” Rational, that Lex. Unfortunately, his super-keen gut instinct led him to the wrong person–a member of his own alliance, at that–and Kelly, not helped by Brandon’s defection, was voted out of the tribe in a 5-4 vote. She becomes the first member of the Survivor Africa jury, so Lex and his gut better watch out.
